(2012-10-09) Microsoft Has Released A Huge Update For Windows 8 And Windows Server 2012

Posted by Jorge on 2012-10-09


I was updating my VMs for my disaster recovery session at The Experts Conference in Barcelona and I noticed Microsoft had released a huge update that applies to both Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 somewhat more than a month after the RTM. Microsoft calls it the general availability cumulative update.

In summary the update does the following with regards to performance and reliability improvements:

  • Increased power efficiency to extend battery life
  • Performance improvements in Windows 8 applications and Start screen
  • Improved audio and video playback in many scenarios
  • Improved application and driver compatibility with Windows 8
